Tom Horton, the Hermosa Beach paddleboard competitor who was raising money for the Agoura Hills-based Greater L.A. Chapter of the ALS Association (see this link), finished Sunday’s race in 6 hours 47 minutes — 63rd overall out of more than 100 competitors and 11 minutes later than last year.
“It was another grueling year,” he said. “The water was very calm and glassy most of the way. There was a small Northwest swell coming through which added a bit of push against us and most people I spoke to finished later than last year.”
From his goal to raise $50,000, Horton has so far received nearly $10,000 in pledges from more than 80 folks, but they’re still coming in. If you’re able to contribute, go to his link (linked here).
